Help scientists survey part of the Meso-American Barrier Reef, the world’s second largest barrier reef system. Cayos Cochinos are the least disturbed ecosystems in the so-called Bay Islands Complex and identified by the Smithsonian Institute, The Nature Conservancy, the Word Wildlife Fund and the World Bank as one of the key sections of the barrier reef system to preserve.
